If you’re a regular reader of my blog, then you probably notice that the look of TrafficAndConversion.com has changed. And what you’ll also probably notice is that it will change a few more times soon, too.

That’s because I’ve just installed the Socrates Theme, created by my friend Joel Comm, with help from his Director of Ideas, Dan Nickerson.

I won’t write too much about the theme here, but I did write about Socrates before, back in April 2010 when Version 1 was released. They released Socrates version 2.0 a few months later.

But the reason I installed it today was that the Socrates Theme gives me almost unlimited flexibility in how I set up my blog. I can pick two or three columns with the click of a button, I can choose any of dozens of headers, an infinite number of colors, and several other layout options.

Plus, you can easily insert Adsense ads, clickbank links, and lots of other moneymaking features.

Usually, you need several different plugins to do all of that.

But it’s all part of Socrates.

so, that’s why I say that TrafficAndConversion.com may continue to change over time. There are just so many options with the Socrates theme, I imagine I’ll keep experimenting for a while.

It takes just seconds to try just about any idea you might have.

You can watch a video of how to set up and install Socrates here.

Hi Mark,
Could you put a post up comparing Thesis to Socrates in terms of SEO optimisation. I remember the launch of Socrates and how it was supposed to be orientated toward affiliate marketing and came with lots of bells and whistles.
SEO is big on everyone’s agenda, a peek into the machine would be good.
